During the 1st semester, your work will focus on system knowledge and training in work methods.

Teaching methods and the academic level have been planned to accommodate everybody – regardless of whether you have an upper secondary qualification or a basic vocational education.
Fundamentally, the study and work forms are based on projects. They strengthen the cohesion between the academic subjects and ensure that from the moment you start your studies, you use the same work methods that are used in the industry. You will work with various projects during each semester. The framework for the projects will be pre-defined, but you will be able to influence the specific projects. You will be working in a project group assisted by a project supervisor. Furthermore, you will receive guidance and theoretical tuition through assignments and exercises.
You will be taught and supervised by the Academy’s permanent lecturers and by guest lecturers from other educational institutions and companies.
The programme is organised in a flexible way – this includes both the academic subjects and the teaching methods. Our classes are small with ongoing evaluations and personal interviews between students and lecturers. Our methods ensure that you get the maximal benefit and that we can take your individual objectives and needs into consideration. You can enter the department 24 hours a day and you are welcome to use the Academy's equipment whenever it is convenient for you.
Collaboration with the business sector
Our main collaboration with the business sector is in connection with internships and projects where we use project supervisors from various companies. We also benefit from guest lecturers who are able to describe the most recent trends and state-of-the-art technologies.
The specialisation subjects for the 2nd and 3rd semesters can be arranged as teaching at companies and as internships.
